H2020: EU Research and Innovation

The vision of the Energy Union put forward by the European Commission in February 2015 is of an integrated continent-wide energy system where strong, innovative and competitive companies can develop the industrial products and technology needed to deliver energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. Citizens should be able to take ownership of the transition and participate actively in the market. Both the Energy Union and the Digital Single Market focus on tangible benefits for the consumer.

With the strong belief that innovation is an investment in our future, the European Commission is supporting via Horizon 2020 - the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever – breakthrough close to market projects in the area of Smart Grids and Energy Storage, which have the potential to contribute to a successful digitally supported energy transition.To complement individual project's work, the BRIDGE initiative offers a discussion forum to the currently running Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage projects, to create a structured view on cross-cutting issues which are encountered by the projects and might constitute obstacles to innovation.

Panel: Towards a pan-European approach to data handling

data flow and accessibility are largely perceived as key enablers to support the energy transition and new business opportunities in Europe. Still, several are the barriers towards a pan European approach that could prevent the emergence of new competitive services. H2020 projects have progressed towards innovative approaches to Data Management and cooperated in the framework of the BRIDGE initiative to boost the removal of existing barriers.

RESERVE: enabling a transition to up to 100% RES

Introducing even higher levels of RES generation is challenging the stability of power networks.  New techniques are needed to regulate frequency and voltage in this context.  Both concept development, simulations with hardware in the loop and field trials are needed to validate the techniques as the basis for proposing new and modified network codes and ancillary service definitions.  These challenges are being addressed by the Horizon2020 project RESERVE and initial project results will be presented.
